- Around And Around fake before Sugar Magnolia.
- First east coast China > Rider since 08-05-74 and first with Brent.
- Both sets can be burned to single discs with overburn.
- Crossfades were applied at tape flips and pauses between first set tunes when needed.
- 'Lineage 1' source (through Sony 158SD > C1) is from Barry Glassberg's copy of Bob Wagner's MAC, which includes up through New Minglewood Blues in Set 1. The remainder of the show is from Glassberg's MAC. The MAC for both 'Lineage 1' and 'Lineage 2' were both recorded on Sony 158SD units patched into the same set of Nak CM700 microphones.
- 'Lineage 1' history recounted by A. Egert: "Tape one side one is a patch from Bob Wagner's MAC. Barry had left the pause button down for the start of the show and decided to get the patch from Bob who was his taping partner at the time. I believe it was duped on to Barry's MAC the night of the show. They had bought the the pair of Nak CM700's together and had yet to split the pair up and buy one more each. In essence the patch is a copy of the same source."

Fond, fond memories....
Maybe a bit subjective and partial here, but this represents one of my fondest show memories. Driving to Binghampton on a moments notice, bumping into a friend and getting a face value ($7.50, I think) ticket in the parking lot, running up the ramp and into the arena just as the first notes of Sugaree rung out. Hot day, very hot inside the Broome County Arena - women were taking shirts off, dancing in bras or less - always a good thing! First time seeing Brent with the band; happy that he seemed to mesh and add to the music. Leaving the show and watching the guy leap off the ramp to his death; followed by the "coldest beer ever" in the parking lot. Chowing down on some cream filled confection at an all night grocery while waiting for gas to get home - this was during the fuel embargo, gas was available on an even/odd day basis only, and we were wrong for that day. Lots of rememberences...

I Gotta Go 5 On This One
First off, I wasn't there so I feel I can be somewhat objective. Next, the sound quality is everything we've come to expect of any source that combines the words Glassberg and MOTB. Pristine stuff. Full and clear, I'll take this over a SBD anyday. The show? Really, really good stuff. The first set has Jerry going off, fingers moving like a hummingbird on crack. The Sugaree opener is extremely powerful and they keep it up all the way through to an immense Jack Straw closer. First rate all the way. In the second set, they really open Pandora's Box and set loose the Beast. The China/Rider opener might not be the longest out there, but it more than makes up for it in quality. Absolutely smoking. But when we hit the He's Gone>Truckin>Other One jam is when things get silly. Really fine, fine stuff here. As always thanks to Mr. Glassberg for an excellent recording job and to the MOTB folks for another masterpiece.
